The Fantastic Four franchise is in serious trouble, with the latest reboot being panned by critics and achieving disappointing box-office numbers.
So what better way to revitalize the franchise than by rebooting it yet again, this time with a director whose debut film has a passionate cult following after more than a decade in theaters?
In an interview with Milwaukee Magazine, Wiseau made his interest clear. “You know, I told you I saw this Fantastic Four,” he said. “I’m not being critical—let me put it this way, I like it, I did enjoy number one. Number two, it’s too bad they didn’t call me.”
Wiseau continued: “Good response in Europe though, that’s my understanding, but it’s too bad they didn’t call me, that’s my point. Maybe if there’s a sequel, you know. You know, maybe your article gets me that job.”
Honestly, after this many disappointing Fantastic Four adaptations, a Wiseau-led version couldn’t possibly be any worse. 20th Century Fox should just go ahead and give him a call.
